"A landslide in Southport, Trinity Bay has created a hazardous situation. Resident Sam Lambert says Friday's heavy rains brought rocks and debris crashing down, partially blocking the road. Lambert says while driving conditions have improved since workers cleared the road on Saturday, he is still concerned. He says the hillside is still loose, and he's afraid there could be another rockslide."
